Q.My Alworthia Black Gem Is Dying Due To Overwatering. I Took Few Healthy Leaves Out For Callousing Before Repotting.
Now the leaves are releasing water and has become mushy at the bottom. Doesnt seem like any roots are growing. It’s been 4 days already. Do i need to repot it immediately?

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see how far the damage has progressed. In the case of rot- It may not be salvageable.
You can try to take a leaf and lay it on top of some xeriscape soil. This may allow it to take root. Once you see root nodules, you can plant it. They will prefer things on the dry side, more like and Aloe, and less like a Haworthia.
In fact, you can treat it much like an Aloe.
